I would like some opinions on Metastock, tradestation, amibroker, etc, even ninjascript. For the purpose of building, backtesting and optimising automated trading strategies. I have not done any programming before so ease of use is important. I`d like to be able to trade mainly futures, forex, commodities & options. I would also like to be able to have the strategies I build be able to trade automatically in real time. I have an account with IB so it would be good if the software was able to link direct through IB.
Any help appreciated.
